    Current Employee - Systems Project Manager
    Current Employee - Systems Project Manager

    I have been working at Applied Materials full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    the people /the passion / the products

    Cons

    The executive leadership/direction. Lower paying than some others in current market

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees will make diving catches all day long for a management team that they can respect. Not so much if that respect is not earned.

    It was okay,just can't figure out why they don't hire on experienced contractors,instead they let them go.

    Former Employee - Engineering Technician in Austin, TX

    I worked at Applied Materials full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of hours, great pay as a contractor due to all the over time.

    Cons

    Management doesn't really interact with individual technicians, worked there for a whole year and saw the Manager of my department at least 3 times a week and he had no idea who I was or anyone except people that had been there for decades.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Interact with your employees. Show them you care, I get that contractors come and go at applied but not every contractor is just there for a paycheck. A lot of contractors there come in on weekends on very short notice, work the long hours to get through the quarter because they want to be there and earn a spot full time. Talk to your contractors,get to know them, make them feel like part of the team. Not just another number.
